    Traditional English Pub. I had Fish & Chips and Leffe beer. I liked the food and atmosphere although my buddy had the same and thought the fish was too greasy. Hmmm... I liked it!

    Don't worry, lots of other good food choices.

    Friendly staff and patrons. If you're in the area and want a good pub experience I think you'll like The Greyhoud.

    Staff is friendly.  Kitchen closes early so I wouldn't plan on eating there unless you intend to go early.  I'm American so I expected food anywhere I had a beer....uh wrong.  Please stop and have a pint.  A three star review in my book is worth the stop.  I will say I'm older and felt very comfortable not surrounded by college aged groups so I guess its a mature pub.

    Go here on my lunch breaks at work as the drinks are pretty cheap and the food is fast.
    It's not amazing but it's not claiming to be. Nice local and the staff are always friendly.

    A perfectly acceptable place to stop by for a pint, right around the corner from spending your Whole Paypacket.

    Sunday roast: Perfectly decent, beef not overdone, heavily lacking in veg (beef, loads of gravy, indifferent yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and mash). The bar staff is not so sure what to make of food orders, it seems. ("What roasts do you have on?" "Yes, Sunday Roast" "Yes, but which kinds?" "Roast" "Roast what?" "Sunday Roast" "You know, Lamb, Beef...")

    Three decently kept if unimaginative ales on tap (one was off, one was Price, one was Adnams when I was there). The bar staff were friendly without being annoying and poured a proper pint, well, with attention. Decôr is perfectly acceptable, though a bit blah.

    Where this place works well is as a place to watch a match.

    If you're in the 'hood, swing on by; if you're not, well, I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

    Good beer, yummy nachos and great service in a cool atmosphere.  The place is usually packed with locals when there is a good rugby or soccer match on.  

    Minus one star because we arrived on a Sunday night at 5:30 PM and the pub stopped serving food at 6 PM...and they were already out of the fish n' chips and chicken.  The lack of food obviously didn't stop us from throwing back a few drinks but it would be ideal if they served food a bit later!

    The Greyhound looks like quite a small local pub from the outside and opens up to a vast interior. Glad to see a pub that's still a pub and hasn't been turned into yet another gastro pub. Mind you, the food is excellent, a good mixture of pub stables (bangers & mash, burgers, fish & chips) and grazing boards. The latter are extremely generously portioned and come on beautiful wooden boards.
    Good choice of beers and wines, just perfect.
    I would like it even more if there were fewer screens and machines slotted around the bar area.

    The Greyhound is hidden away just off Kensington High Street and a nice pub to go to for a drink with friends. It has two pool tables so if you fancy a game you can come here after work. It also serves food so is a good choice for some pub grub for lunch or dinner. I used to come here for lunch a few years back when they used to have 2 main meals for £5.99 but unfortunately the price of this offer kept creeping up as the portions of the meals got smaller and smaller so it was soon no longer good value for money which was a shame.

    I've seen a few England games here and although the atmosphere is great, the big screen TV is very badly positioned as it reaches the floor meaning that people are frequently standing or sitting in the view of the screen. For footie matches I would recommend the Kensington Arms down the road although that's no perfect either but at least you can always see the screen.

    Food was just ok. Prices aren't bad. Friendly bar keep. Good place for a pint, and some chips, but don't get the meat pie.

    A great place to pop in for a pint after spending the day shopping on Ken High St.  The Greyhound has lots of seating, some boothy-parts in front and some tables and games in the back.  The bar is roomy and relaxed, pints are fairly reasonable, and there's a mix of locals and passers-by which will always make for good people watching.  Great place to meet up with friends if you're off for a night out in Kensington or calling it after a few cheeky pints.

    While visiting Great Britain, my husband and I stayed at a hotel in the Kensington area. One evening, while we were looking for a pub to have dinner, we stumbled across The Greyhound. I'm so glad we did. The atmosphere is cozy, the bartenders are friendly, and the food--while plain and definitely pub food--was tasty and hot. It was one of the highlights of our London leg of the trip.

    Enjoying my first pint of UK Guinness! Cannot speak for the quality of the food, but the seating is nice.  I've found a corner near the window where I can read and drink and catch some football should I choose to do so.

    Although I'd don't frequent this pub as much as I used to abuse it, whenever I'm there it reminds me of Cheers: Yes, somewhere where at least someone will know your name. The beer is reasonably priced, food is a solid pub menu for about £5-7 per plate and the locals here are top-draw - next time England play, get there early to get a seat (i.e. VERY early) and spend a couple of hours chewing through your fingernails with some of the most boisterous people Kensington can offer. The only downer is the staff seem to be on a rolling rotation these days - I didn't recognise any last time I passed through.

    Located just off kensington high street, this is quite an upmarket pub, frequented by quite a well-off clientle. The staff though seem slightly obnoxious. It consists of two main rooms, on of which boasts two full-size and a very large projector screen for all live sports. There is always a great atmosphere there for the big games. There is a great food menu during the day which won't set you back too much. ( I would recommend the steak sandwich). The spaciousness of the pub is a nice change from the very small ones around ken hi.

    A really old and comfy pub, with sofas as well as usual chairs. They have several Ales, especially London Pride is very fine. The food they serve is also very good. Plus: The waiters and waitresses are very nice. Perfect place to spend your complete saturday afternoon with your Friends.

    Nice local pub to chill out and I love living in the Royal Borough:-) I think I will get used to the Greyhound evenings.
